Driver Hits Person, Leads Police on Pursuit: PD

A hit-and-run suspect led officers on a chase into downtown San Diego Tuesday evening, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The man hit a person but refused to stop at the scene, police say. When officers started chasing him, he took off and tried to escape.

It wasn't long, however, before the driver pulled over in the 6800 block of Federal Avenue and put his hands out of the window in surrender.

Police say they were taking the suspect into custody. The person hit had minor injuries, but the investigation is ongoing.

It's unclear with what the driver will be charged.
